Leaves in the third picture seem to belong to some other plant but
looking at flowers and leaves in first 2 pics, this is Uvaria narum of
Annonaceae, a large climber of the evergreen forests. Regards,
Yes, ..., you are right, the third picture belong to some other plant.
The leaves of Uvarium narum are alternate.
Uvaria narum - Kariballi in kannada
Many many thanks, for the ID help.
It appears like images of Uvaria hamiltonii Hook. f. & Thomson posted by ... rather than images of Uvaria narum (Dunal) Blume posted by ...
The mature leaves of U. hamiltonii are densely hirsute and rough on backside. however in U. lurida the leaves are glabrous. Please check it. I dont think this can be U. hamiltonii.
I am keeping on the debate, It may be Uvaria zeylanica, rather than U. concava (=U. lurida).  ... should clarify.
I have not studied this genus so I am not very sure. But i dont think its U. zeylanica since it has much smaller leaves and flat lanceolate petals (not concave). I dont think its hamiltonii or lurida as they are known only from north east and Orissa. U. hamiltonii also has tomentose leaves while the leaves look glabrous in this species, I think it could be either U. narum or U. hookerii. A photo of the fruit and a LS of a fruitlet might help.
